I picked this tea up at Chapters last night as well, and decided to brew some up as soon as I got home. They say a bag will make 24oz, which is what – 3 cups? No. It needs to be diluted further, then poured over some ice.

I like the flavour of this one, but it would have benefited from the baking soda trick a little. That, and dilution. Wow. Possibly a 3 minute steep instead of a 4 minute steep.

I saved the tea bag from this one because I think it’ll make another jar of (weaker) tea. But next time, instead of making it in a canning jar, I’m making it in a pitcher. I think I can get 6-8 cups of tea from just the one steeping.

(Whee! 400th tasting note! 199th tea tried!)

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)
